Dry eye can affect anyone no matter their age or circumstances, but some groups of people are more likely to suffer from dry eye than others, and one of the most interesting pieces of information in the article, is that those groups include people over 65, those who use certain types of medications or have certain medical conditions, and people who have jobs that require lengthy computer screen use.

The Eye Institute wanted to use this article to bring particular attention to the subject of dry eye. They feel they may have done this best in the following extract:

‘There is not one single cause of dry eye. Tears are an essential component of eye health. Composed of aqueous, mucin, and lipid, a tear film covers the surface of your eye. As you blink, your eyelids spread tears across the cornea, while excess tears flow through small ducts in the inner corners of your eyelids. Tears lubricate the cornea, facilitate clear vision, prevent infection, and clear foreign particles from the eyes, and are essential to having healthy eyes.’

The Eye Institute now welcomes comments and questions from readers, in relation to the article. The doctors at The Eye Institute have made a point of saying regular interaction with the readers is important because it provides useful and vital information pertaining to eye health.

In discussing the reason for creating the article, Dr. Chad Morgan said:

“Everyone’s eyes can feel dry at times. But if people experience scratchy, irritated eyes that are easily fatigued, they may have the medical condition called dry eye. The reason we created the article is to let people know that dry eye affects the quality and amount of tears produced. That’s important because the lubrication and infection protection provided by tears is necessary for eye health.”
